Guys,

My exam is scheduled for next Monday - I need some advices on what to do on the next 4 days. So far I read the whole HFSJ, played w/ Tomcat, and am now training using simulators. My scores so far:

Whizlabs: 76%, 69% -> Average: 72%
JWebPlus: 66%, 68% -> Average: 67% (both not impressive)

What do you think I should do to improve my scores? Re-read HFSJ? Keep taking simulators and learn with mistakes? Other ideas?

Any help is much appreciated.

Did you take the mock exam at the back of HFSJ? Most people score 20% higher on the real exam than on the HFSJ mock. It's a good indicator for how well you are prepared.

Nope, haven't yet taken the last quiz on HFSJ. I'll be taking it two days before the exam, so I'll still have an extra day to review things I get wrong. Thanks for the advice!

Anything else I could try? Maybe some failure-proof voodoo?

if you do it, it will be like trying too hard..
so the final mock and a quick revision is ok.

If you want you can read my story !
